Welcome to the B&MK Waterway Trust

The Bedford & Milton Keynes Waterway Trust was established in 1995 to promote the development of a  broad waterway park, which will link the Grand Union Canal in Milton Keynes to the river Great Ouse in Bedford through a series of waterway parks. It will include pathways and green space designed to meet the needs of all who enjoy rambling, walking, cycling, fishing, horse riding and those who simply like to chill out next to the waterway park.  We believe it should be an essential part of the infrastructure in the Oxford/Milton Keynes/Cambridge Corridor.
